Alfonso Morales, Vilas Distinguished Achievement Professor in DPLA, was featured in the UW Now Series: The Future of Cities. Morales answers questions with fellow UW experts Tim Riddiough and Paul Robbins. The program is a Q&A discussing what U.S. cities will look like post-COVID-19.

What effect has quarantine had on air quality, urban wildlife, and transportation? How is the pandemic impacting our ideas about urban planning and real estate? What might cities of the future look like — and what will it be like to live in them?”
